Baby Bear Girl


As this recent commissioned card has a few too many non-current Stampin' Up! items on I thought I'd put it over here which, yet again, has been a little neglected.

I have been doing some quilling recently although some of it is secret for now but I will report on it later in the year.

This fab bear is Baby Bear from Stampin' Up!.  The thinlits she's mounted on are discontinued but were ideal for this card.  I've used the set Something for Baby for the background and the sentiment is also from the bear set but the die cut letters are non-SU.

A Doodling Birthday

And another sample from club:


Using another of my favourite set of stamps, this one is Huge Happy Birthday from Woodware.

I've simply stamped it in black and used a different colour fineliner and Zentangle pattern in each letter.  This was a really popular stamp on the night.

Doodle Owl

Tonight at Craft Club we had a go at Zentangle.

This owl is a Woodware stamp and I have copied the zentangle design from a book I have which saved thinking!


I've added a little pencil shading that was in the book too.  The sentiment is also in the stamp set and I've just layered up and added some little sparkles to finish!

Anyone for Basketball?

And another one ... this time for my nephew.
He is a very sporty type and is pretty good at Basketball.  You wouldn't believe it (!) but I found a set of stamps the other week that I bought cheap at a show - found just in time although I had forgotten I had bought them!!

So, I used most of the stamps on his card!


I've stamped some on orange card and cut or punched out, some are 3D'd on to the card, some are stamped straight on the card.  I also cut out different numbers from the stamp for the top as he was 10.

He thought it was amazing so I was pretty pleased with that.

A card!

And another month bites the dust!

Posting regularly on my sister Stampin' Up! blog & Facebook (in between sickness!) has taken its toll on here I'm afraid.

Quite a few commissions I have done in the last few months have used pictures of the recipient and because they are more personal it doesn't seem right to put most of them on here.

That said I made one for a friend last week who then wished some of her pictures weren't available for me to steal on Facebook!


This picture doesn't show it that clearly but each picture was printed twice and the second layer had a letter cut out which spells out 'Forty' going down the card!  Rather fun for something different.

Pack up your troubles

This was the second card we did with Debbie at Liberty Craft In Exmouth recently:


Using a couple of Woodware stamp sets, maps, inks, crayons and shrink plastic we had great fun and it's good to do something a bit different too.
